10/10 Exceptional

This is our 3rd stay at the Lion Hotel and we love it! All the staff are so friendly! Special shout out for Ula! The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast scrumptious! Winchcombe is a jewel in the Cotswolds! Can’t wait for our next visit!

4/10 Fair

The building is so beautiful! The pub was comfortable with indoor and garden seating. The chef arrived a bit early in the morning to make breakfast. However, my room had intermittent loud sounds from equipment all night long. I did not sleep. There is no air conditioning so on a hot night, the room is quite warm.

10/10 Exceptional

Having visited the Cotswolds many times as one of our favourite staycations. The Lion Inn was the best hotel we have stayed in. Leanne and Ula are a credit to the business. Room 4 a feature room was absolutely beautiful and very spacious. Being situated in the centre of the town was fantastic with all the lovely little boutiques and restaurants right in the doorstep. Sudeley castle is situated in the town and you are only 8 miles from Cheltenham! The breakfast at the Lion was amazing. We had supper on tfe first night which was also very good and Leanne’s cocktails a MUST!! We can’t wait to go back. The Halls

8/10 Very good

Nice for a 1-night stopover.
Spacious room with a large bathroom. Bed was comfortable, as was the room - except heating seemed to be on a timer (ie didn’t come on until evening) and shower wouldn’t give any water in the morning until heating came on at about 8am, so had to wash at the basin! Pub food was good, though limited for children. Not sure if there was hotel parking, we parked in the street (which is 1-hour restriction from 8am-6pm, but we didn’t get ticketed! Friendly staff.
